MacWise Terminal Emulation
Version 10.7.58 Released
March 15th, 2005

environment commands and connecting to the host.

the user is left in the tc shell after the host closes the telnet
connection. If you are a system administrator and you do not want
your users to have access to the Mac tc shell, you can disable
this option (if you can connect to the host and it recognizes your

process will be displayed including responses from the host. This
can help diagnose login problems.
